Portugal visto desde Inglaterra...

Um artigo sobre o caso McCann, publicado no jornal britânico "Mail on Sunday", no passado dia 20, o autor, David Rose, recorda Rachel Charles, uma menina inglesa de nove anos, morta em 1990, no Algarve...



O caso levou depois à condenação de um cidadão britânico, Michael Cook, mas houve acusações de tortura por parte da polícia portuguesa:

"It is claimed that Cook was hung from an upstairs window by his feet, that his feet were beaten until he could not stand, that he was tied to a chair and beaten, that he was deprived of sleep and that a revolver was forced into his mouth and the trigger pulled in a mock execution".

Este caso, recorde-se, provocou uma série de perguntas no Parlamento Britânico, em 1992.

David Rose abordou ainda o caso Joana e, mais uma vez, escreveu sobre a tortura:

"They threw her to the ground, kicked her and hit her with a cardboard tube. They put a plastic bag over her head, made her kneel on glass ashtrays . .. The accused believed that by causing her intense suffering, they would force her to tell them how she killed her child and where she put the body".

Tudo para concluir que Kate McCann, afinal, até chorava no início do caso...

"According to the Portuguese Press, one factor that influenced his desire to make the McCanns arguidos was Kate's supposedly 'cold' demeanour in dealing with police and on television. In fact, as the photo published on Section 2's Page 1 today makes clear, the first known image taken of Kate on the morning after Madeleine's disappearance, she was distraught".



Mas, já agora, quem é o jornalista David Rose?

"One of the things that made me uneasy about my lunches with MI5 and MI6, which usually took place at very expensive restaurants, is that, in a reversal of usual journalistic practice, the agency men insisted on paying, often with wads of cash, presumably to protect their 'cover'"...

Ok.
